culprits seeking to diminish christmas, the american civil liberties union, the freedom from religion foundation, and the american humanist association. the most aggressive is the freedom from religion foundation, which routinely threatens to sue small towns and school districts if they dare utter the word christmas or allow choirs to sing carols in public schools. the irony is that nobody's bothering the atheists. they are free to celebrate whatever they want to celebrate. they're free not to believe, and they are free to snicker at anybody who does believe. that's not good enough for these people. they want to banish any mention of jesus in the public square. they are the oppressors. the christmas spirit people are just upholding a nice tradition. so why are we allowing anti-christmas madness? polls showed 47% of americans show there is a war on christmas. 40% do not. 13% are confused. so once again this year, i will keep an eye on the situation. helping me is the alliance defending freedom organization based in scottsdale, arizona. they have been very successful in defending tradit

, intersection of religion and politics, different side of our president and a lot of folks get to see. sometimes we see him as an avatar on our television screens, in the white house press briefing room or giving a speech. i have gotten to know him as the man who has vulnerabilities, is compassionate, has his own flaws but at the end of the day is a decent human being and been able to show a little bit of that side of him in the book in "the president's devotional". i would like to read a little bit of it for you. give you a taste of what some of the devotionals are about and open up too a couple questions and sign some books. one of the themes i often came back to in "the president's devotional" is really helping the president find a sense of joy and laughter and gladness in the midst of some difficult and deep and serious times. he is a pretty serious guy himself and i wanted to use the devotional to allow him to release a little bit and get to a place of joy. to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free silhouetted by the sea circled by the circumstances, with all memory and fai

religion. it's not that you have to be a historically disadvantaged member of the class but you are treated differently because of your membership in a particular class. >> isn't harassment harassment. you don't have to be a protected class member to be harassed? >> no, not at all. that has to be based on, for example, in this case, based on gender. you were subjected to a hostile environment, a pervasive environment. remember, the courts will not find hostile environment where it's just a random conversation or if it's just flirtation. they identify the difference between a one-time comment and a pervasive environment. they will say, as in this case, because someone has used the "p" word, is that what we'll call it? >> yes. >> it is a gender specific epithet. >> it is. >> i would feel like that's a gender-based epithet. that tends to lean the other way. each of these is a different case. >> even if she cannot win the argument on the protected class argument she's making, do you think that they, the group of employees, male employees, can win their argument? >> great question. let's say tha
